Healthy Buildings

healthy-buildings

The first Healthy Buildings conference was held in Stockholm, in 1988, supported by the CIB, and co-sponsored by ASHRAE and the WHO. After the successful first conferences, the International Society for Indoor Air Quality (ISIAQ) was founded in 1992. Since then, Healthy Buildings conferences have been organized every two years by the scientific community in addition to the globally organized Indoor Air conference series. The conferences are hosted alternately so that the outreach to the scientific community is enhanced. Even though other “Healthy Buildings” franchises have appeared ever since the ISIAQ continues to host the original series. The Indoor Air conference series mainly focuses on science, while the Healthy Buildings conference series addresses both science and the transfer to practice, simultaneously. Furthermore, Healthy Buildings allows for addressing specific issues solely related to a geographical region. Based on this, Healthy Buildings conferences do not only attract researchers but also practitioners of various professional backgrounds, including manufacturers, hygienists, facility managers, real estate owners, building product suppliers, and many more!

Healthy Buildings 2025 is the first ISIAQ-related purely focused on Indoor Air and climate-oriented conference in INDIA.

The International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate, ISIAQ, was founded in 1992 by 109 international scientists and practitioners. It is an international, independent, multidisciplinary, scientific, non-profit organization whose purpose is to support the creation of healthy, comfortable and productivity-encouraging indoor environments.

As a Society, our main objective is to actively promote international and interdisciplinary communication and the exchange of valuable information pertaining to the indoor environment, indoor air, climate, science, and health. We do so by diligently publishing and encouraging the publication of research and studies in the field. Moreover, we take great pride in organizing, sponsoring, and supporting various initiatives like meetings, conferences, and seminars, all dedicated to shedding light on the importance of indoor air quality and climate. In addition, we remain committed to developing, adapting, and maintaining guidelines that serve as a blueprint for enhancing indoor air quality and ensuring a healthy indoor environment. Furthermore, our dedication to this cause extends to our collaboration with government bodies, agencies, and other societies that share a common interest in the well-being of the indoor environment and the impact it has on human health. By working together, we strive to create a cleaner and healthier indoor environment for all.
